Richard, I know nothing about Claws Mail but there is a detailed article 
at their site about setting up Gmail with their MUA, have you already 
checked it?

http://www.claws-mail.org/faq/index.php?title=Using_Claws_with_Gmail

And some additional (and useful) info and tips on how Google's IMAP works:

OTOH, I dunno how Claws manages this, but usually you can also select [x] 
what IMAP sub-folders you want to keep synced (subscribed) with and "/
All" folder is something to avoid in this case, of course :-)
